I'm not so sure that I like the new video player. How do I get the durn thing to autoplay when it is embedded? Adding autoplay="true" to the embed code doesn't seem to work.

Thanks!

Plus the fact when you hit the "switch back" link it won't switch back. I don't mind changes when they actually improve something but from what I've seen, that's not the case here.

Same problems here. Can't play movies now with the new player and can't switch back to the old player. I don't understand why changes are made to something that works so good, and then the changes result in something that won't work at all. I need some help to be able to watch movies with this new player.

hi cowboy gary,
can you reply w/ approximate situation it wasn't working?
pc/mac/iphone/ipad/android/other?
firefox/ie/safari/chrome/other?
was it for audio items?
did the first track load and end up playable?

thanks for any clues!

Thanks, Jeff.

cowboy gary, this situation reminds me of the old saying: "If'n it ain't broke, fix it 'til it is."

sorry about that -- bug on my part.
defaults to non-new player now
and allows you to "opt out" again after "opting in".

ok, added this per your desire/request!

try an embed url like:

Thank you on both of those, Tracey. That code works great.

One other request - unless it's just me - the embedded player doesn't appear to have a fullscreen option. Can I add that to the embed code, and if so, how do I do that?

Thanks again! :-)

d'oh!
glad to hear it's mostly working/useful for you.

unfortunately, at least right now (and not in the immediate forseeable future) we aren't able to offer fullscreen-ing to work with the [iframe] style embed code.

i did put together this new page that hopefully is useful to those interested!
